StarVR powers Emaar Entertainment's VR Park in Dubai

DUBAI, 10 days ago

StarVR Corporation has announced a major deployment of its location-based virtual reality (VR) entertainment solution at Emaar Entertainment's VR Park at The Dubai Mall.

Working in tandem with Starbreeze Studios, the park's leading content partner, StarVR is providing end-to-end VR location-based solutions with highly-customized hardware, onsite installation, operator training and after service for the majority of Starbreeze's attractions.

"We're proud that StarVR location-based entertainment solutions are powering the majority of the experiences at the newly-opened VR Park in Dubai," said Bo Andersson Klint, chairman of StarVR Corporation. "With an industry-leading resolution and 210-degree field-of-view designed specifically for professional use, visitors can be immersed in premium VR experiences that are way beyond what's available at home."

"VR Park is the latest revolutionary experience to be delivered by Emaar Entertainment, offering cutting-edge experiences alongside partners including StarVR," said Damien Latham, chief executive officer of Emaar Entertainment. "As we continue to deliver unprecedented entertainment experiences, we're pushing the boundaries of innovation for the industry and inviting visitors to #ChallengeReality with our entertainment destinations."

At the launch, visitors will be able to enjoy a variety of popular Starbreeze VR content in 5K ultra-high resolution and 210-degree field-of-view that only StarVR head-mounted displays (HMD) can deliver. They can step into the world of the Walking Dead where the apocalypse has hit in Overkill's The Walking Dead – Outbreak, battle bots atop a towering building in APE-X as a massive weaponised cybernetic ape, play the legendary assassin John Wick in John Wick Chronicles, or experience an exciting and pivotal scene from Universal Studios' 2017 film, The Mummy, as a Prodigium Agent tasked with capturing the ancient princess Ahmanet in The Mummy Prodigium Strike.

The StarVR solution boasts a premium virtual reality HMD built from the ground-up for enterprise and professional entertainment use with its 5K resolution and 210-degree field-of-view, offering experiences above and beyond home environment setups. The solution features a high-speed optical tracking system that can accurately track motion at scale to provide an ultra-immersive VR experience for LBE (Location-Based Entertainment) operators. StarVR Corporation offers end-to-end solutions featuring the StarVR HMD, customized hardware options, onsite installation services, operator training and after service. - TradeArabia News Service
